Canadian Jewish Political Affairs Committee
In support of cutting funding to Hamas

[22 June, 2006]

Mr. Pierre Poilievre (Nepean—Carleton, CPC) [Poilievre.P@parl .gc.ca]: Mr. Speaker, these petitioners strongly support the government’s decision to cut off both diplomatically and financially the Hamas government in the Palestinian territories. They believe that Canada should stand four square behind the Middle East’s leading democracy in Israel and that Canada should not finance a terrorist-led regime.

The petitioners also resent very strongly CUPE’s decision to boycott products that emanate from that leading democracy, the state of Israel. I am proud to support them in introducing this petition.
